Weeks, Lohse lead the Brewers past the Cubs

Rickie Weeks June onslaught continued Tuesday.  The Brewers opened their three-game series with the Chicago Cubs with a 9-3 victory at Miller Park.

Weeks paced the offense with a pair of home runs, a double, and 4-RBI.  For the moth of June, Weeks is now batting .429.  On the season, he has 8-homers and 19-RBI with 5-homers and 9-RBI coming this month.  Weeks claims he isn’t doing anything different…

AUDIO: Rickie Weeks isn’t sure what he is doing different :10Kyle Lohse improved his record to a “hard luck” 3-6 on the season.  Lohse has not seen too much run support in 2013 but got plenty of help Tuesday.  He lasted 7-innings allowing 3-runs on 8-hits.  The lone blemish was serving up a 3-run home run to Nate Shierholtz.  Lohse is happy with how he has been pitching lately…
